Discussion in 'Discus' started by ivansa, May 7, 2007.
Would 6 small discus be a safe number to try and get at least one breeding pair.
6 would be fine and the more you get the greater the odd's. what we can do "If keen" is swap some of the same strain, males for females and visa versa to get more pairs, a win win
Yes I would be keen.
Only have one pair at the moment. The others still need to grow some more.
Im looking @ +- 12 of the new ones from guppies.
Are these fish coming from David Lim again?
Yes they are.
Thats great and alot, your bound to get pairs.
Sorry, should have said 6 of two different strains.
Hoping to get a pair of each strain.
Some nice pictures on fishiotribe.com
David Lim.. I've heard the name.. where does one get hold of him ?, google does not show up anything. I hear he has amazing discus
Sorry, found him - guess he is not the dude who climed everest
Oh.. is is quite far away.. lol, who imports from him and does not mark up 300% I am getting tired of seeing really sick, dark and thin Discus in our LFS, they have zero idea how to keep discus healthy before purchase and sorry but they aint going into my tank.
I am happy to take from the airport home into QT
As far as I know guppies for yuppies brought in alot of discus a few months ago. You could ask them when they are planning on bringing in again. They are in JHB thou...
Yeah, JHB no good, want the quikest and most direct flight in, CT delivery direct only if at all possible, does'nt Sams bring in from there.. I'm sure he does.
Sorry haven't been on line for a while
Have been keeping discus in a planted tank for some time. The plants are not too good and my wife keeps on insisting on my replacing the plants. I believe that the temperature is too high for good plant growth.
Be careful of discus from Sam - I had a bad experience when he sold me sick stock that had just arrived. It cost me a lot of other discus as well. Quarantine well before adding to your display tank.
Yeah.. I believe you Gerry !
I just came back from a trip to DBN.. Northlands Aquatics up there has the most amazing Pigeon Checkerboards ( same as my avatar ) I have ever seen.. amazing R450ea.. little steep without seeing the size, well worth it if you saw them, can bring them in for maybe R300 but with the R/$ we are gonna start to kuk !
